The following 2.5 hour presentation makes the strong case for De Vere.
It provides a possible explanation for how Anne Cecil may have 'tricked' her husband into fathering Elizabeth. Or, is this all part of a larger deception?
The closing of the presentation suggests that the descendants of De Vere were indeed in on the cover-up, making the claim that the Cecils' and the Second Creation Oxford's are to take all the heat less likely to me. Likely they were just doing their job for the larger enterprise.
The presentation discusses that De Vere had separately used both the names 'William' and 'Shakespeare earlier, thus making sense of the hyphen employed between the two names. De Vere had made theatrical use of Blackfriars before 'Shakspeare' bought it via funds bequeathed to him from De Vere's second wife.
At about 2:03 is discussed De Vere's apparent philosophy and moral theology, which is very similar to what I recently expressed to Richard E. about taking the proper actions of its own merit. This is interesting as well in that De Vere had turned to Catholicism for a period of about 6 years, but had betrayed his cousin in a Catholic plot against the Queen. Or was De Vere spying, as is claimed for his time in Europe?
In any case, the presenters invoke a distillation of Christ's message of "Go and sin no more." This was used by Jesus twice in the Bible, one instance involving adultery (this also involving the famous phrase about casting the first stone). De Vere is a prodigy, like Jesus and Josephus.
A modified painting, once held by a Stanley descendant of De Vere, was used to depict 'Shakspeare' as part of the coverup. For context, the Stanleys and the De Veres placed Henry VI Tudor on the throne.
De Vere's father had been poisoned (as had Ferdinando Stanley - blamed on either Jesuits or witches) and various linkages are made, including De Vere's thoughts back to the collapse of Troy and to the Aeneid.
De Vere is then seen simultaneously as an aristocratic man of the past and a man foreseeing the end of feudal Europe. Not mentioned in context was that Thomas Cromwell is frequently credited today with inventing the nascent, modern nation-state out of Henry VIII's kingdom, and this in the time of Machiavelli and his The Prince
. Cromwell, a yeoman made noble like Cecil, was mucking around Italy at the time The Prince
became known. And yes, he was related to Oliver.
